Teething Of 1 Year Old Children?
in the morning my child is now 1 year old, there are only 6 teeth yet, is that normal?
Hello Nisa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Each child's teeth will grow at different times. For example, the lower front incisors will grow in the age range of 6-10 months, the upper front incisors will grow at the age range of 8-12 months, the incisors in addition to the upper front incisors will grow at the age range of 9-13 months, the incisors in next to the lower front incisors will grow at the age range of 10-16 months, and so on. The child's teeth will be complete totaling 20 new after the child turns 20-33 months. This growth can also be different for each child.
In general, children aged 18 months already have between 8-12 teeth. However, as previously stated, the speed of tooth growth in children can vary. Tooth growth delay of up to 6 months can still be said to be normal. For example, if the incisors beside the lower front incisors of your child have not yet grown (they should have grown in the age range of 10-16 months), it can still be said to be normal. If it has been more than 22 months that the tooth has not grown, you can consult a pediatrician or pediatric dentist for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
